Usually decreases the value, since the personalization only matters to the person who had it personalized. Also, without any kind of evidence that the signature is authentic, its just "interior writing" which always decreases value. Though, to some, it makes things more interesting...

Me, I'd only buy it if it was ultra rare and had my name in it, which is good for me that my name is pretty common. ;)

Funny, though. Same auction listed twice.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Logically, it should drive the value down...

Any chance that will happen?  Nope.  This one will go through the roof.

Damn, that is a nice BIN.  US only, but shipping probably would have been killer anyway.

And now someone probably has done the seller a service by bidding - because now it'll surpass the original BIN when this is over.

I have not seen this before. All the original OD&D stuff in pdf on a CD-ROM. Is this a legitimate product?

No.

Obviously some effort was put into making it look legit though.  The fact that is contains non-TSR items and has a random assortment of products included pretty much insures that it is not.

Reported. If a few other people report it, I imagine it'll be shot down.

I remember this guy has been selling the Ares PDF compilation for a long time.  It looks like he has expanded his business now to include other PDF collections as well: SPI UNIVERSE: Collector's CD-ROM & Accessory Pack SPI ARES Magazine Archive 2x CD Set Adobe PDF THE ZONE Series E-Books 1-10 CD Version by James Rouch GDW Twilight 2000 Complete 1st Edition DVD Set GDW Twilight 2000 V2.2 Complete 2nd Edition DVD Set AH PANZER GRUPPE Panzer Blitz, Leader DVD PDF CHALLENGER Modern Wargame Collection CD PDF TSR Original Dungeons & Dragons 1974 and beyond CD PDF He has 5 of these up now.  If you want to report them all at once, cut and past these Ebay auction numbers into the form:
** expired eBay auction **
,  
** expired eBay auction **
,  
** expired eBay auction **
,  
** expired eBay auction **
,  
** expired eBay auction **
It looks like he has sold a number of them already.  Also interesting how his price has increased for some of them too.  SPI Universe started out as $10 then $20 now $25.

At the bottom of the auction page, in the Other options section there is a link to "Report this item".



That brings you to list of choices.  I usually select for Step 1: Counterfeits and copyright violations; Step 2: Bootlegs and Counterfeit media; Step 3: Media on Recordable formats.  You then click continue and use the "email us" option and paste in the auction numbers and click send.

I generally use "photocopies of copyrighted materials".  However, the more reports they get the better.
